This past Sunday's sermon at church stemmed from the story of Mary and Martha, and I really really liked what the pastor had to say. The main point was that we put so many expectations on ourselves to be perfect or be a certain way, and that often these expectations are completely unfounded.
I really wanted to share it, because it took a load off my shoulders and somehow reached me in a way that all the books I've read and even my past counseling sessions were never able to. I wrote down in my notes, and even in my Bible, to go back and listen to it on a regular basis.
I know listening to a sermon probably isn't your idea of a great evening activity, but perhaps you could just play it while you're cooking dinner or cleaning up afterwards. :)

If you do listen to it, let me know your thoughts. :)
